about me

A bookful blockhead, ignorantly read

With loads of learned lumber in his head,

Fixed like a plant on his peculiar spot

Pros and Cons of Having Committees in Your Club Games
Would modify this slightly: why don't you tell the players to score the result at the table, then do the consultation, then make the ruling? After all, they have to put something on the traveller or in the machine. Your consultation can then be as wide as time and ...
All the aces
We probably should play 6NT at all forms of scoring. For those who wish to consider a bidding problem rather than a play problem (which is to say: almost everyone) construct an auction to 6NT, or any other contract of your choice. Do not feel constrained by the rubber bridge ...
All the aces

JOLLY Upsets MONACO
Could easily imagine ruling the other way if asked. Usually wrong to think with a singleton (partner ethically bound to play you for one if you think without one), but depends on carding. Would need to see the whole hand.
Experiment for master thesis
It is not enough that "almost all" are super-rational. If not all are, then none "should" be (Hofstadter referred to this as "reverberant doubt"). A personal aside: I have read GEB and Metamagical Themas (not metamathematical ones, Charles - the phrase was an anagram of Martin Gardner's Mathematical Games) often ...
Shortest Board Ever
In the 2001 European Championships the match between England and France featured a deal in which all four players removed their cards from the board. They replaced them without a call having been made and handed it to a Director, who returned in short order with a version of the ...
